Your civil rights do not include you having the right "...to end the life of my own child..." That describes murder and is illegal.
Your civil rights do include your reproductive rights, though. And these allow you to accept or reject any unwanted/unhealthy medical condition. And since you claim, "...it is no longer my rights alone that are at stake..." I'd find it safe to assume you would be against abortion under any circumstances whatsoever. That's fine. Nobody in America will legally be able to force you to abort against your wishes. Even if you were pregnant and incapacitated, if you had a directive stating you'd wish to remain pregnant, then it would be so.
This is the other side of Roe v Wade that doesn't get as much air time as the abortion procedure. Civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy also include the right to refuse treatment during an unhealthy pregnancy. To remain pregnant even against doctor's orders.
Wipe out Roe, you wipe that out, too. Something to think about...
So you are saying without Roe a doctir coukd force me to end my pregnancy. Idont remember anything like that before Roe. Women forced to abort. Advisdd to deliver early probably in life and death situations..but no one was pulling babies out against moms wishes.

The NAF is a professional organization; they denied gosnell membership based on health code violations.
I can guarantee you that every hospital and clinic 20 years old or more has violations. It's not like the NAF saw womwn crawling down the hallway, triling fetus parts. They had nothing in particular to
report to egin with. The clinic simply didn't meet their standards.
<quoted text>
"So too with the National Abortion Federation. NAF is an association of abortion
providers that upholds the strictest health and legal standards for its members. Gosnell,
bizarrely, applied for admission shortly after Karnamaya Mongarís death. Despite his
various efforts to fool her, the evaluator from NAF readily noted that records were not
properly kept, that risks were not explained, that patients were not monitored, that
equipment was not available, that anesthesia was misused. It was the worst abortion
clinic she had ever inspected. Of course, she rejected Gosnellís application. She just never told anyone in authority about all the horrible, dangerous things she had seen."

Yes I don't expect things to get better either. They will not, and it is one woman at a time making a choice.
It does not shock me, that sooo many choose to have an abortion, nor that sooo many are all in for helping them make that choice, as easy as possible, BUT it does sadden me.:(
What do you mean by "so many"?

There are over 4M live births a year in the USA.
There are about 800K induced abortions.

Four million live births.
Eight hundred thousand terminations.

Four million...
Eight hundred thousand...

What do you mean by "so many"?

I don't remember a Karen, but other than that, you got it right.
Yes, the memory is the first thing to go. Of the mind, that is. Physically, I think it's the joints :)
Youve got that right. DONT forget the back too. These portable contraptions make posting a lot easier than sitting at the computer creak creak..even if the typing is harder with touch.

I think Karen was her real name not screen name. She was nice. I think she had been a PL but went over to your side. Oh well guess she is not here anymore anyway.

Good to see some people keep their names tho.. Lot less confusjng for the okd brain cells

God woke me up, and when I yeilded to Him I woke up, with all I just mentioned in reverse.
Abortion bothered me, I hated the smallest curse word, hated the smallest of sin, let alone lie, cheat, steal.
That's been 12 years ago, and I still do.
Only A God can do that.
Not to mention how before that night I wanted nothing to do with any church, bible, praying, after -can't get enough at times.
God is real -you've been told. Have a nice day :)
What you are referring to is a psychotic break.

Doctors, gov't, and courts. There have been prior rulings where women were court ordered to abort... but at least one legally was able to use her right to refuse.

It may be generations in the future, but these are our daughters, nieces, granddaughters, etc. Or it may just be one or two generations in the future. We have almost 316M people in this country alone. Over four million live births a year will take a toll. Remove abortion, there'll be almost five million live births a year. How long can we sustain that? Especially when more and more people are regularly making it to their 100th birthdays?

I'll stab at it, those 'plates " appear to line up ok from the air, but under the waters they do not. Were they divided???
There was a world wide flood about 4000 years ago, before the flood we had a water "canapy " between us and the sun. It never rained, we lived in a much different world. Plants grew bigger, animals grew bigger "dinos ", we all lived longer, since then animals are smaller, we are to, and don't live near as long. Gaters never stop growing, so in the right enviroment they can get huge!
Most dino parts they find, is a head here a leg there, but rare to find a whole one.
Sounds like the drown in a flood, floated to the top, fell apart, and sunk back down in the mud quickly.
The earth could have been here cold and without light, untill God said let there be light???
Many may dismiss him, but I recommend you watch 1 of 7, of Dr. KENT Hovinds theory tapes. Are watch them all, and see what you think???
The truth is none of us were here 5000 years ago to know, let alone millions, and No one has ever seen one "kind " evolve into another "kind ".
You can take a small dog, and breed it with a large dog, and come out with a different dog, BUT IT IS STILL A DOG.:)
You can take a large bird and breed it with a lion and, oh wait you can't do that unless you believe in evolution and need more and more time to prove what they say.
We never lost a tail -we never had a tail.
Plus loosing a tail would be a bad thing, as I've pointed out. That thing would come in handy. Lol
I'm sorry long night moon, but you must choose sooner or later which you will believe "by faith ",becouse both God and evolution must be by faith.
It is easy for me to say now, after I met this God, but before I had no idea. I truly didn't believe in God, but couldn't believe in evolutuon either?!?!?
I pray you invest a little time in the Hovind theory. I found it very interesting, becouse we still have some dino's here on this earth, it is only known to a very few who live in the Amazon Jungle, and have not been to the us to study evolution. They just know, if you go far enough down the Amazon, there is a creature that we say is exstinct, that won't eat you, but will smash your wooden boat to pieces.
Please get a copy of the hovind theory -hes not a perfect man, and I don't agree with him on everything, but you can.look at the tittles and pick what you may like. Sea monsters /lockness monsters, etc...
Very interesting stuff.
A very interesting reply, and I thank you for the time it took, but I must disagree on several points. First, plants and animals grew bigger because there was a much greater oxygen percentage in the air at that time. Second, evolution is not about one species changing into another but rather each species improving and adapting through natural selection. As you must know there are fossils that show this process and clearly prove there were earlier versions of many species.

Also, we have something known as human vestigiality, or organs and body parts that no longer serve a purpose. For example; the appendix, tailbone (coccyx) and wisdom teeth.

I'm not familiar with the "hovind theory" and will have to look it up.

What you fail to see among many things, is what you just wrote is no difference in me putting.

Since we only kill 800,000 babies out of the near 5 million that "could be born " each year, then what's the big deal??? Hey be thankful over 2/3 of the women chose not to kill theirs.

Plus "most " of the women get the deal done, when the baby is very small, and feels no pain. This not only makes us feel better, but helps the lady of the world keep her nice fiquer, before sum kid wrecks it.

Mabey I should rethink things? Be less stress on me, as far as the world.

Maybe "for example " - about 5 million people die each year of natural causes, so who cares, that out of that 5 million, 800,000 had their heads blowed off by some other person?,?

So, you think you know what life forms are more "important" than another? Are you being truly objective? Of course you think humans are the most important life form; you're human! Once you start deciding what life is more important than another, you're discriminating based on your personal bias. It sets a dangerous precedence.
They seem to be selectively "pro-life". They enjoy killing for gluttony and then shriek about the sacredness of life.

Oh the hypocrisy.

So for the good of the planet or whatever abortion is a good thing..next comes getting rid of gramma (thats my generation) on an iceflo.. life should be held sacred or we all lose our rights to life..but then again maybe that is the idea. All this death committee stuff.
anyway that is not my reason for being prolife..I have been for decades...
I hope I personally never in a pisition to be vegetative. And I believe in DNRs as long as they do not become the norm for the convenience of others and population control.
Not the topic but older people have worked hard all of their luves..paid taxes and Social Security. For decades..and yet some people see them as just a drain on the system. It is a sad state of affairs but ghe inevitable follow up to what you are talking about..abortion as good for populaion control..when one set of lives becomes expendable it is only a matter of time where others are .

Is this what you want for your daughters and granddaughters.

You're just a lost soul, and your fathers will you will do.
You have a spiritual father, even if you don't believe.
He would rather you didn't , and he prays you die this way.

I do not pray you die this way

I agree with you -there was a much greater amount of o2, the hovind theory talks about that.

Our tail bone is not an option -study more, you will know why :)
Dr. Hovind has offered I believe up to 200,000 bucks to have yours removed, if you're game?
he offered one scientist I know to have it removed.
More on those later.
Nutshell -before the flood, we lived in a nicer greenhouse with more o2 :)
